Memories Timeline


  1. ..enjoyed many a laughter and good time with Cathy……WATCHED ALL YOU KIDS GROW UP AND KNOW HOW SHE LOVED YOU!

  2. Chris, Lori, Tim, So sorry about the loss of your Mother. I will never forget all the good times that Rich and I had with your Mother and Dad. Going to the Church picnics, Barneys, dancing in my living room, we always had lots of fun. Its hard to believe how many years ago that was. I will miss her, but now she is with Ike dancing. Prayers and hugs to everyone. Linda Lomba

  3. There are two memories of my Mother-in-Law that stick out the best for me. The first is when Lori and I told her we were getting married and she said “Boy are you gonna have your havds full with Lori and the girls!” Still makes me laugh to this day. The other is when Lori and I took Cathy to the casino. We picked her up and she was all dressed up for a night on the town! None of us won but spending the time together and seeing Cathy’s excitement was priceless!
